Chance Bye Good Value in 2010 Golden Slipper

Impressive two-year-old Chance Bye has had her hopes for a win in the $3.5million Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m), run at Rosehill this Easter Saturday, further elevated after drawing ideally in barrier three.

The Snitzel filly erupted into the limelight last December when she won on debut at Randwick. She backed up her impressive first appearance with a solid victory in the Inglis Classic before blowing away her rivals in the Group 2 Silver Slipper Stakes (1100m) last start.

The Michael Tubman-trained Chance Bye was a steal, purchased for just $15, 000 as a yearling, and a bargain buy by any means let alone for a Golden Slipper winner.

With a field full of so many speedy starters including Crystal Lily (barrier one), the Gai Waterhouse-trained Brightexpectations (barrier four), Hinchinbrook (barrier five) and even Solar Charged out wide (barrier 13), the 2010 Golden Slipper is sure to be an intense and competitive dash.

If the John O?Shea-trained Solar Charged manages to cross the field and snare an upset win on Saturday she will make history as barrier 13 has never before produced a Golden Slipper winner.

Meanwhile jockey Kathy O?Hara, who will be aboard Chance Bye in the Golden Slipper, is also looking to make the history books and become the first female hoop to claim Golden Slipper victory.

If the blistering early pace sees Chance Bye struggling to lead, O?Hara is likely to race her just off the pace and sit behind one of the pacemakers such as Brightexpectations and pull out a late burst over the final stages of the Golden Slipper.

Chance Bye looks excellent value currently at $13 with Ladbrokes.com.au?for a win, her generous odds due to the fact that she hasn?t had a start for five weeks.

With possible showers predicted for Sydney on Saturday, a wet track could add yet another dimension to the Golden Slipper.

Tubman is confident Chance Bye would perform well in the wet, as did her sire Snitzel.
